Jar of Thanks

Hi Friends! The weekend is here and I hope you'll have some time to ENJOY it! Last weekend the weather was so hot it broke a record (hottest day since 1918!). Today it's cold and rainy and I've got the wood stove on. Go figure! But, the garden is tilled and I'm ready to get planting!!! But I think I'll save that for tomorrow, when the weather is supposed to be a bit more dry. That means, today I STAMP!

The Jar of Love is such a wonderful stamp set - and it comes with coordinating framelits too! 
You can get both these items as a bundle until May 31st and save 10%. After that they will be sold individually (this goes for all the bundles in the 2016-2017 catalogue that are being carried over - so grab those bundles and save money before next Wednesday!).
